You just can’t keep a good franchise starter down.
With the film seemingly on the outs just a matter of months ago, Disney appears hellbent on getting their take on The Lone Ranger into theaters, and now, they have yet another cast member.
Deadline is reporting that James Badge Dale has joined the cast, which at this point includes Armie Hammer, Tom Wilkinson, Ruth Wilson, Dwight Yoakam, Helena Bonham Carter, and Johnny Depp, with Gore Verbinski aboard as director.
Dale is best known for his work on The Pacific and Rubicon, both fantastic TV shows featuring fantastic performances from the actor. Personally, I can’t wait to see what he and this great cast and crew have in store for us with this project. The creative team here is really great, and this cast features some top notch talent. I’m not sure what kind of weight this franchise will have, but it is definitely one to keep an eye on.
